Haverhill military veterans may now take advantage of free legal help.

The city’s Veterans Services Office begin offering an “attorney-of-the-day” once a month beginning this Wednesday, March 9.

“It’s very common for vets to have legal questions about a situation and they don’t know what to do or if they have a case,” said Interim Veterans Services Director Ralph T. Basiliere. “The idea is to meet veterans where they are and give them the support and help they need.” Basiliere secured a local attorney who agreed to meet and offer free legal advice to veteran.

“Attorney-of-the-day” service is offered on the second Wednesday of the month in half-hour time blocks between 9 a.m. and noon, at Haverhill Citizen’s Center, 10 Welcome St. Appointments may be made by calling the Veterans Service Office at 978-374-2351.

Mayor James J. Fiorentini said “I think it’s a great idea and something that could be very helpful, and I applaud Mr. Basiliere for taking the initiative.”
